Baby Hair Bows

The new tween-age hair fad is buying baby bows. At the local baby boutique these darling, little bows set you back about $3.00 to $6.00! My daughter was begging me for some...She said, "I really want to get some, but I know what you're gonna say: 'We can make those!' " My little darling knows me soo well!

So make them we did!
Out of these little hair clamps. You can get them at the beauty supply store. They come in a box of 100 for only $3.99!

Get together all your favorite ribbon...

Then glue-gun the ribbon to the hair clamps flat or in bows.

We copied the ones we saw at the baby boutiques selling for $6.00 each and placed a little rhinestone on the center of some.

We gave this cute bunch to our neighbor, Paulina, for her birthday. She LOVED them!

I used to make these by the hundreds when I worked at a fancy children's boutique! They turned out CUTE!!

I remember making those for my little girl, and they were way more than $6.00. I made all of hers, a very smart thing for you to do, and have fun at the same time. Oh thanks for the hanky idea, I have some tucked away. I am definitely going to consider that one for sure. Thanks Jackie

Hmmm...I think I'm going to have to run to the beauty supply shop! I bought some clip fixings from Joanne's, but they didn't turn out like I wanted. I think those hair clamps are just what I need!
